I didn’t really care for this story. I couldn’t seem to really get into it. I sometimes got frustrated with the story. I didn’t like how Sophia treats her best friend cecy. I also didn’t particularly like all the action being in Sophia’s mind. Just not the same. The romance really wasn’t until towards the end of the book and it seemed rushed.
